Calling RFC function modules
Authorization tools - advantages and limitations
Now the structure must be filled "with life". To do this, you must first create meaningful subfolders in the customer's own structure. As already mentioned, these are mostly based on the SAP modules. Make sure that you also set your customising for additional add-ons, so that later the work of support organisations is easier. Call the transaction SOBJ. There, you create customising objects that will later be reused in your IMG structure. It is useful to name the object exactly as the corresponding table. This simplifies the later maintenance in the IMG structure. Here you also decide whether and how the tables can possibly be maintained in the productive system. To do this, select the appropriate entries in the Category and Transport fields and check the Current setting option. Repeat this for all custom customising tables that are still needed.
Each pass of the profile generator collects all the permission suggestions from the SU24 transaction to a transaction added through the role menu of the single role and checks the permissions to be added to the permission list. The following effect is to add transactions to a role when the added transaction is announced through the role menu of the role and various criteria are met.
Evaluate Permission Traces across Application Servers
Wildgrowth of characters used in user IDs can have negative effects. Set a bar on it by limiting the character set in the first place. In the SAP system, depending on the release of the SAP_BASIS software component, you can create users whose names may contain "alternative" spaces. In Unicode systems, there are different spaces, which are represented by different hexadecimal values. The usual space has a hexadecimal value of 20, but there are alternative spaces (wide spaces), which can be recognised, for example, as double width or not at all as character spacing. You can use these alternate spaces when entering the user ID by pressing the Alt key. For example, the key combination (Alt) + 0160 can create a space with a non-breaking space. You can also create a user whose ID consists only of alternate spaces. Users with such IDs will write all change documents, but the IDs can still cause confusion if, for example, they are not recognisable as a user ID or if it appears that no user is displayed for the change document. In addition, certain special characters may cause problems in other applications (e.g. in transport management). Therefore, we will show you how to prevent such problems by limiting the character set.
The SAP Solution Manager is the central platform for all technically supported services, because information about the connected systems is available when you schedule data collections for these systems via background jobs. The documentation for the safe operation of SAP systems is compiled in the SAP End-to-End Solution Operations Standard for Security (Secure Operations Standard). It provides an overview of security aspects of SAP operations and is designed to guide you through the available information and recommendations and to refer you to relevant content.
During go-live, the assignment of necessary authorizations is particularly time-critical. The "Shortcut for SAP systems" application provides functions for this purpose, so that the go-live does not get bogged down because of missing authorizations.
For example, the object class AAAB (cross-application authorization objects) contains the authorization object S_TCODE (transaction code check at transaction start) with the authorization field value TCD (transaction code).
As a result, a controller of a business unit, for example, can only view the consolidated figures of his business unit, but not the figures of the entire group.
